Description of problem:
I have a ldap db which has objects which have the following objectclass:
When running queries which look for objectClass=person, the above objects are not returned as part of the search.
They should be, as objectClass InetOrgPerson inherits from objectClass person.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an ldap entry which has objectClass=InetOrgPerson, and NOT objectClass=person
2. Search for (objectClass=person)
Actual Results: The expected entry was not found
Expected Results: The expected entry should have been found
